That center in the opinion of MANY is a foolish pipe dream in the WRONG DIRECTION. If someone wants the property to develop by ALL MEANS sell it and abandon this foolish notion.

The development in Bluefield has to be SOUTH near the 460 bypass and out to John Nash to the INTERSTATE...that is where the traffic flow and PEOPLE coming in are!There will be some "spinoff" of this development to the downtown but the thrust has to be with traffic flow.

The downtown is what it is-it will NEVER be the retail center it once was as is the case in MANY MANY American towns.

[email protected] Rahall and anyone that votes for that drink son b!tch...all he cares about is Beckley.

The state of West Virginia has long written off Bluefield, and we won't even have a legislator thanks to prune Judge Frazer.

RIGHT where the IDIOTS are wanting to locate it serves absolutely NO PURPOSE.The whole concept is totally ignorant.Would have been GREAT when the trains were running...could have had train and bus( city bus) and Trailways or Greyhound bus and cabs all located in one nice central area.....nothing goes into that part of town now.The DEVELOPMENT needs to be in the direction of the INTERSTATE and 460 bypass WHERE THE TRAFFIC AND PEOPLE ARE.
